Pig farming in Ukraine: largest production companies in 2019
APK-INVEST Group of companies is the largest pig farming business in Ukraine in 2019, the Pig Breeders Association informs.
"Despite the decreasing trends in the number of industrial pig farms in the last few years, the total number of enterprises is about 1.7 thou. However, the core and simultaneously the driving force of industrial pig production is a relatively small number of pig farms.
